Sometimes I feel like I must be living under a rock. Somehow, I’ve been missing out on Chalk Paint. I had never even heard of it until this past Sunday, and now I’m completely taken with it! I’ve been told that there’s actually a place that sells it locally (right here in little Waco, Texas, which shocks me to my core), so I’m definitely going to check it out.
What’s so great about Chalk Paint? Evidently, there’s no need to sand or prime the surface before painting, it cleans up with water, and it contains very low VOCs. It also gives furniture a gorgeous chalky finish, and is easy to distress, antique, and wax.
Here are a few pieces I found painted with Chalk Paint…
Aren’t those finishes gorgeous?! I’m really anxious to find a Goodwill dresser or something like that and try out this paint. No sanding, no priming! Sounds good to me!
So have you tried Chalk Paint yet? How did you like it?
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!
